In this installment of our occasional series “This is Sick (But in a Good Way),” we bring you A MOMENTARY LAPSE OF RIDING, a 75 Canon EOS 600D time bullet array showcasing the skill of BMX wizard Viki Gomez – and everyone else behind the cameras.
This really IS sick in a good way, and not just because of the 75 Canon EOS 600D array, the Phantom, or all the amazing software and other kibbles and bits.
In this instance – as always — the real stars of this short film are the people both in front of AND behind the cameras. Five years in development? Holy cow.
That’s passion and commitment.
Watch and enjoy.
Message from Christian Van Hanja:
